Barcelona vs Espanyol Betting Tips, Predictions and Preview

Barcelona vs Espanyol predictions and betting tips for this Thursday night Copa Del Rey fixture on 25th January with an outright tip and First Goalscorer prediction included.

The first leg provided one of the shock results of the week with Espanyol beating Barcelona 1-0 but the Blaugrana have the opportunity to bounce back here and ensure their qualification for the next round of the competition. This is always a competitively fought derby match and this will be no exception. The big news is that Phillipe Coutinho could make his debut in this game after signing for Liverpool. A thigh injury has kept the midfielder out of the squad so far but he could feature here alongside the returning Andres Iniesta.

Barcelona vs Espanyol Predictions

[inline_advert ad=”1″]

Last week’s 1-0 defeat aside, Barcelona usually fare well against their Catalan rivals and with a place in the Semi-Finals at stake, they can’t afford to get complacent. Ernesto Valverde’s side bounced back with an impressive 5-0 win at Real Betis on Sunday and they always score plenty of goals at the Nou Camp against this opposition. The first of our Lazio vs Udinese betting tips is Barcelona Win & Over 3.5 Goals which is priced at 5/6 with Betway.

 

First Goalscorer Tips

[inline_advert ad=”2″]

Lionel Messi missed a penalty during the first leg of this game and he will be determined to make up for that error. He is rarely off the scoresheet and has a great scoring history against their near neighbours. He scored a hat-trick when the two sides met here in September. He is 39/17 with 888Sport to grab the first goal of the game.

 

15 Minute Prediction

Barcelona will be determined to start quickly and they can’t afford another slow start here. At home they are strong and should find a way through early doors. Barcelona to be leading after 15 minutes looks tempting and is priced at 21/10 with William Hill.

 

Barcelona vs Espnayol Betting Preview

Barcelona are short-priced favourites for this clash and are priced at 1/11. They usually start matches at the Nou Camp at prohibitive prices and most punters will need to find alternative ways of supporting the hosts. A draw could be tempting for many and is priced at 9/1 whilst Espanyol are 18/1 to complete an unlikely double over their Catalan rivals.

As our football predictions suggest, Lionel Messi looks a good bet in the first goalscorer market and can be backed at 11/8 to get things started. Both Teams to Score in this game is 21/20.
